Mass recovery can play an important role to better the performance of adsorption refrigeration cycles. Cooling capacity can be significantly increased with mass recovery process. The coefficient of performance (COP) of the activated carbon/ammonia adsorption refrigeration cycle might be increased or decreased with mass recovery process due to different working conditions. The advantage is that its COP is not sensitive to the variation of heat capacity of adsorber metal and condensing and evaporating temperature. The cycle with mass and heat recovery has a relatively high COP.
